Brief Description of Course: ENG110Y explores the stories that are all around us and that shape our world: traditional literary narratives such as ballads, romances, and novels, and also the kind of stories we encounter in non-literary contexts such as journalism, movies, videos, myths, jokes, legal judgments, travel writing, histories, songs, diaries, and biographies. We will examine a diverse range of texts and explore, through close readings, the various ways narrative responds to, reflects and shapes human experience. The primary objective of the course is to help students distinguish between impressionistic and critical reading and in so doing to build skills in analytical reading, thinking and writing. The course will attempt to develop students' competency with various methods of analysis, thus enabling students to pursue further studies in a variety of subjects.
